Referral

The New Road Schools’ admissions process typically begins with a referral from the local school district. The district contacts New Road Schools and will send student records for our review. These records will usually include the IEP and any available student evaluations. Our intake team will review the records as they are received.

Parent Contact

Once a student is referred by the district, we will promptly contact the sending district to arrange an interview and tour of the school(s) under consideration at the parents’ or guardians’ earliest convenience.

Interview/Tour

During this initial meeting, we will explain all we have to offer your child, to help you to make the best decision for you and your family.

Decision-making

If the parents or guardian, local school district, and New Road Schools agree the student’s placement is appropriate, we will enroll the student in a timely manner in order to prevent or minimize any gap in the student’s educational services.

Program Start

Once a student is enrolled we will conduct our own assessments of the student’s academic, social, and behavioral needs, and his or her strengths and weaknesses, and set to work tailoring a program and curriculum to match his or her needs.
